6 June 2013 – Planning for a Special Event Station

Bryan, M0BIK using a Power Point presentation outlined the ‘Why, When and Where’ this event would take place.  The RSGB has arraigned with Ofcom for affiliated clubs to use a special callsign,G100RSGB, to celebrate the RSGB’s 100 years as the National Society. Each period of either a week or a few days the callsign would be assigned to a different Region and our Region 9 will allow us to operate with the callsign from 28 to 30 June.  Brian detailed how we could use the field to best advantage and asked for operators to come forward to sign up.  As yet, not a lot of operators have signed, but as we get nearer to the time, it is expected that more members will be able to fit in some time.  Most operations will be SSB, while there should be two CW operators on hand to work the WARC bands.
